The music of Procol Harum set the stage for the extraordinary new photo exhibition at London’s 180 Strand, taking its paraphrased title – A Shade of Pale – from the name of their most iconic track. It’s curated by Carrie Scott, well recognized for her collaborations with Nick Knight at the SHOWstudio Shop, as well as her work developing collections of modern and contemporary art for notably high-profile clients.

Presented by the store x and spanning two floors, with ten artists (Lorena Lohr, Tom Munro, John Pawson, Federico Pestilli, Marina Shacola, Ellie Tsatsou, Bindi Vora, Marco Walker and Walter & Zoniel) exhibiting over 470 photographs, Scott purposefully joined together those whose works have no specific relation to one another, inviting visitors to experience a new sort of journey – focusing on the broad collection of a photographer rather than an isolated image. It’s a show of individuals, individual pieces of work, and in effect, visitors are encouraged to build their own visual narrative.

Best said by Scott herself, it’s “a grouping of groups, a gathering of creative visions, an assemblage of aesthetics.”
